Taegan Evans and the Straggat Media Network recently had the opportunity to interview three talented track and field athletes who traveled to Jesse Owens Stadium in Columbus to compete against Ohio’s top athletes for a chance to place on the podium. These athletes were determined to give their all and showcase their skills. It was an intense competition, but they were up for the challenge. The excitement and energy of the event were palpable, and each athlete pushed themselves to the limit to achieve their goals. It was clear that their hard work and dedication paid off, and they left the stadium with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Hear about the experiences of Brendan Zurbrugg, Carter Lewis, and La'Kasja Edwards during their time in Columbus in the video below.
